This is another 9 patch trying to fit into 8 inches. I haven't checked the finished size on this one, but I did cut the square pieces at 3 3/16ths. I haven't made it with a dark background before so this was fun.
The Ohio Star is is an all-time favorite block. Joyce and I - with her then 9-year-old daughter's eager assistance - made a quilt for Tanya with large Ohio Stars on a white background some dozen or so years ago.
